* ETC, a channel under Solar Entertainment in the Philippines, is the reason for the smash ratings and huge success for their broadcasts of ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' and its spinoff ''Series/TheOriginals'', with both shows having huge fans among Filipinos. When TVD aired a Carol Banawa song on a Season 7 episode, Filipinos all over the globe rejoiced, including local viewers.
* ''Series/OrphanBlack'' is as huge a sensation in the United States as it is in Canada, becoming BBC America's first true breakout hit besides ''Series/DoctorWho''. While there have been a number of other recent Canadian exports on American television, like ''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' and ''Series/RookieBlue'', none of them come close to the popularity of ''Orphan Black''. In fact, Tatiana Maslany's 2014 Emmy award snub is seen as the biggest of the year.

(Chord Overstreet's song ''Hold On'', which was featured during that episode, also brought back memories of ETC being the national TV broadcaster for ''Glee'' in its 6 seasons, Chord having played Sam Evans from season 2 onwards.)

** Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger is very well received by Western audiences. Helps that it kicked off with a fight sequence involving every single ranger up to that point.
** ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' is also loved by Western audiences, to the point that some consider the suits to be honorary Power Rangers. One of the biggest complaints of Series/PowerRangersMegaforce among fans of both series was that, given that the series mark on the Power Rangers and the zords/monsters being particularly iconic to many long time fans, their dismissed use in Megaforce was a [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter big waste]]. Many felt that they could have been used as a send up to the ties between Franchise/SuperSentai and Franchise/PowerRangers.

** In India, the live action ''Franchise/GiantRobo'' series is almost universally adored amongst Gen X-ers and early Millennials thanks to it being broadcast around the mid 80's on the only television station in India at the time. It was so popular that it was rebroadcast repeatedly well into the 90's and toy watches imitative of the one Daisaku Kusama/Johnny Sokko had were reportedly the best selling toy in India in the mid 80's. When Indians think of Tokusatsu, they tend to think of ''Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot'' because of it' sheer popularity.

* British comedy-superhero parody ''Series/SuperGran'' is a campy depiction of a grandmother with superpowers. It's regarded as "meh" at best in the UK but it was a huge hit in Cuba breaking records on ratings.

* ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE'' was always big and well-liked in the West, but its popularity in Russia was through the roof. Of course, having a Russian main character who was not a crude stereotype but a complex and nuanced character (who was also intelligent, tough, cultured, charismatic and patriotic), helped a lot.

* There used to be a Russian channel called [=TV6=], which was very popular in India for one reason: porn. The channel, known to locals as "[=TB6=]" because they couldn't clearly distinguish Cyrillic from Latin lettering, is considered a myth by most Indians, who believe that the channel is still around (but it ceased broadcasting in 2002 due to a severe bankruptcy). REN-TV was also popular for the same reasons.

** ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' was very popular in the Philippines; many a young person's face or those in their old years who watched it as kids will light up at the mention of ''Kuya'' Robert- Kuya is a Filipino word for a big brother figure and Robert was DubNameChange for the protagonist Kotaro Minami. It was also the GatewaySeries in Indonesia. Black, [[CompletelyDifferentTitle there known as Ksatria Baja Hitam]] (Black Steel Knight), is considered ''the'' essential Rider, more so than the original. Finally, it's well liked in Brazil. Alas, Black and its sequel ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'' were the only (Showa-era) installments of the entire Rider franchise (not counting the US adaptations) that aired there in the 1990s. It would only be in 2003 when (Heisei-era) Kamen Rider returned, this time on cable (with ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' and [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight its US spinoff]]) and in 2014 on free television with ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''.

** The show is absurdly popular in Brazil, nearly 30 years after its run in Mexico ended. Reruns of ''Chaves'' are played on a particular TV channel before the afternoon's soap operas, and they often outdo the soapies in terms of audience. Some actors of the show came to Brazil several times, especially Edgar Vivar. Also, many Brazilians got sad or even cried (even adults) when Roberto Bolanos died in 2014. The sadness was almost of same levels of the death of Ayrton Senna in 1994.

** In a weird case, ''Series/HotStreak'' was an attempt to introduce Britain's most popular emcee, Creator/BruceForsyth, to American audiences- unfortunately, ABC put it up against ''The Price Is Right'' and ''Wheel of Fortune'', and it was quickly cancelled.

* ''Tropical Heat'', being one of the few foreign series that aired in Serbia during the 90's, has achieved cult status there. A Serbian band has even made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPPKueDVNCQ a song about Nick Slaughter]], the main character of the show]. There was a national movement to establish Nick Slaughter (the protagonist) as a symbolic national hero. Apparently no one associated with the show had any idea of its popularity until 2008 when Rob Stewart accidentally found a facebook group in honour of his character.

There was a period in the late 1980s/early 1990s, where the viewing figures for ''Neighbours'' were bigger than the ''population'' of Australia (it has the honour of being the last imported series to date to top the UK ratings - and the only Australian show ever to do so). At one point there was a rumour in the United Kingdom, that the only reason Grundy and Ten were still ''making'' the series was that Creator/TheBBC were still buying it. In fact, the ratings of ''Neighbours'' in Australia have declined well below the level that, for Australian commercial TV dramas, generally guarantees cancellation.

It still has reruns of the Austrian seasons as well as ''[[SequelGoesForeign Rex in Rome]]''. The {{spinoff}} featuring Stockinger also briefly ran. There was even a parody on an Aussie sketch show featuring one Detective Herring. Davide Rivera, while beloved by the fandom, could not save the Italian audience; but was popular in Russia.
* ''Series/SmallWonder'' was once so popular in India, that a copycat series was produced in the Hindi language with Indian actors. Compare that with America, who see that show as either a joke or the very reason why American TV is considered "the vast wasteland". It was really popular in some countries of Latin America as well, where many people in their 20s and 30s will refer at this show as "Vicky".

* ''Series/ICarly'' is wildly popular in Australia, the United Kingdom and the Philippines, with huge amount of fans following it when aired in the country, and by Internet streaming or downloading when they air in the United States. If you join the iCarly fandom, you're as likely to encounter someone from these countries as you are someone from the USA or Canada.
* The Canadian comedy series ''JustForLaughs'' is popular in Arabic countries.

* During its first three seasons, ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' enjoyed widespread mainstream popularity and acclaim at home in the United States; the ratings were the best in the entire history of TheWB network, the show was referenced in several other shows, actress Kristin Kreuk became the face of Neutrogena's North American ad campaign, Michael Rosenbaum was getting hired to cameo in several movies, and in general the show's stars were frequently featured on TV Guide and other magazines. This three-year golden age culminated in the show achieving a syndication deal with Creator/ABCFamily at the end of Season 3. And then during Season 4, the domestic ratings began to decline (the reasons why are the subject of much intra-fandom bickering, although most people agree that it probably was at least ''partially'' due to the "will they, won't they" Clana subplot boring people). By Season 5, the show had become a [[{{CultClassic}} cult-level show]]. But in Latin America, the show remained a remarkable mainstream smash sensation up until the very end in Season 10.

** Became an AscendedMeme during the 2011 Junior Eurovision, where every entry got 12 points from Australia (complete with a message from a young Australian). Brought up again during the opening monologue of 2013, which featured a "live" shot of an Australian family staying up to watch the final: they were all asleep on the couch. One of the semifinals for 2014's contest featured an unabashed tribute to the country as the interval act, performed by Jessica Mauboy. The country's love for Eurovision eventually reached its epix in February 2015, when (for the contest's 60th anniversary), the EBU finally gave Australia a chance to participate in the contest.

** ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie'': The show never aired in the Czech Republic, but people still know it and love it very much. For example, there are {{Fan Vid}}s on youtube with Czech subtitles. As the example of exceptional love, one cheeky fan translated and provided subtitles for Hugh Laurie's musical number, performing a song called "America". Its only lyrics are intensely pronounced "America" and "the States". If you're wondering, the Czech word for "America" is "Amerika" and "the States" translates as "státy".

* ''Series/PerfectStrangers'', under the name "Primos Lejanos", was HUGE in Spain in the 90s, to the extent that it still airs on television nearly 20 years later. Much like the ''Series/StarskyAndHutch'' example above, the reason of this was an excellent dub. But you [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZBogQbBwF0 don't have to take my word for it.]]

** Plans are underway for the current running ''Ang Probinsyano'' to be aired outside the country in Spanish speaking Latin America. Before that would happen the show would be memorable for a running meme among Filipinos in the country and abroad (which caught other people by surprise outside the country) using the series theme song (''Wag Ka Nang Umiyak'' by Gary V, originally from Sugarfree) as a background for edited scenes of TV series and movies made internationally as if they were remade for Philippine audiences (some of these videos made by fans, through, feature the slow motion and zooming scenes similar to those used in the series, wile others have included Kyla's cover of ''Till I Met You'' (from the drama of the same name), even Vice Ganda and Zsa Zsa Padilla, even one used the current ''Kayleserye'' (on GMA-7's Eat Bulaga) theme music ''God Gave Me You''!)

* ''Series/TwentyFour'' has a large Japanese fanbase, mainly due the MemeticBadass status of Jack Bauer. In fact, Jack Bauer was featured in a few of the Calorie Mate commercials, action figurines, and even his own theme song sung by the [[Creator/RikiyaKoyama Japanese dub voice actor himself]]!

* The recent trend of superhero shows are already mildly popular among Americans, but don't usually top ratings (with the exception of ''{{Series/Arrow}}'' and ''Series/TheFlash'', which are doing wonders for Creator/TheCW). In Canada however, many of these same shows are usually in the top 10, if not top 30 of the week, mainly thanks to {{Creator/CTV}}, Canada's largest television network, moving away from reality programming to scripted shows, a move which has deemed very successful. It helps through that the DC TV series are US-Canadian co-productions.
** When Philippine cable channel JACK TV debuted Arrow in 2012, no one expected that the show, plus the other DC superhero programs, would make a hit among Filipino viewers. Today, Arrow, together with The Flash and Supergirl, have Filipino fanbases, and Colton Haynes from Arrow came for a vist in the country in 2015. (The same goes for Legends of Tomorrow, which airs on cable station Warner TV.)
* ETC, a channel under Solar Entertainment in the Philippines, is the reason for the smash ratings and huge success for their broadcasts of ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' and its spinoff ''Series/TheOriginals'', today both shows have huge fans among Filipinos. When TVD aired a Carol Banawa song on a Season 7 episode, Filipinos all over the globe rejoiced, including local viewers.

* ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' was very popular in Romanian during the 1980s as a result of a plan GoneHorriblyRight. The Communist dictatorship at the time aired the show, believing the show's theme of greed, excess and corruption would make the people disgusted with capitalism. Instead, it had the opposite effect: the people loved the show thanks to the main character, the greedy yet charming J.R. Ewing and wished to have the cool, rich things the Ewings had... and wondered why couldn't they have same thing as well which, alongside many other factors, eventually led to the overthrow of the Communist regime. The show was so popular in Romanian that when J.R.'s actor Larry Hagman visted the country in the 1990s, many people thanked him for freeing their country.
* Canadian TV movie ''The Challengers'', [[MarketBasedTitle retitled ''Marie et sa bande'']], was widely popular in France. It was rebroadcasted many times in TheNineties.
* Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse had a notable following in it's home of the US, but in the UK, the following was ''massively larger''. Not only did it consistently top preschool programming polls in the years it was running, it received a [[TheKiddieRide kiddie ride]] release in the country, and home video releases continued long after the show had stopped airing. In the United States, Disney didn't even bother re-releasing the VHS releases on DVD.
* The BBC's ''Series/EastEnders'' is pretty popular in the States, so much so that there was a huge outcry when BBC America pulled it from their schedule in 2003. Luckily, Dish Network [[NetworkToTheRescue stepped in]] a year later to [[ChannelHop snap up the broadcast rights]] and it continues airing on there to this day, even though it's two months behind the UK broadcast. North Carolina is said to be home to America's biggest EastEnders fanclub.

-->"With an estimated viewership of up to 15 million households, the miniseries turned out to be extremely popular during its initial airing, leading to an increased public interest in the crimes committed during the Nazi era. The series was watched by 20 million people, or 50 percent of West Germany's population, and it first brought the matter of the genocide during WorldWarII to widespread public attention in a way that it never was before. There was a companion show where a panel of historians could answer questions from people phoning in. The historian's panels were overwhelmed with thousands of phone calls from shocked and outraged Germans. The German historian Alf Lüdtke wrote that the historians "could not cope" as they were faced with thousands of angry phone-callers asking how these things could happen."

** ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' was very popular in the Philippines; many a young person's face or those in their old years who watched it as kids will light up at the mention of ''Kuya'' Robert- Kuya is a Filipino word for a big brother figure and Robert was DubNameChange for the protagonist Kotaro Minami. It was also the GatewaySeries in Indonesia. Black, [[CompletelyDifferentTitle there known as Ksatria Baja Hitam]] (Black Steel Knight), is considered ''the'' essential Rider, more so than the original. Finally, it's well liked in Brazil. Alas, Black and its sequel ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX'' were the only installments of the entire Rider franchise (not counting the US adaptations) that aired there in the 1990s. It would only be in 2003 when Kamen Rider returned, this time on cable (with ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki'' and [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight its US spinoff]]) and in 2014 on free television with ''Series/KamenRiderOOO''.
